Anytime there was any sort of discomfort in the body- say a degree of anxiety, fear or concern- this feeling triggered a reaction in the rider that made them feel like they were physically under threat. I refer to this experience as the “coupling together” of activation with a habitual nervous system response- and it’s one that leaves us with a limited ability to cope with anything that extends us outside of our comfort zone. It’s a pre-patterned loop that pulls us out of the present moment and into a default behavior.
This session is all about learning how to step out of that cycle; how to un-couple activation from emotion so that we can hold our ground and our centre, even in the midst of challenge.
+ Common “default” responses to stress. Why we “go there” from a nervous system perspective and how to break the loop
+ “The Great Uncoupling”: Separating out activation from fear and concern
+ Practical processes to allow you to increase your capacity to handle energy and activation in the body (without your heart and mind leaving the building)
